Historical St. Thomas’s

Architect: Eden Smith, 1858-1949

St. Thomas's Church, a beautiful Arts and Crafts building designed by parishioner and renowned Toronto architect Eden Smith, houses a number of architectural treasures, including historical stained glass windows, a First World War memorial baptistery, and a stunning reredos behind the high altar displaying hand-carved statues of nine saints associated with the parish’s growth and role in the Anglican Church in Toronto. St. Thomas's also has a wonderful collection of treasured church vestments and vessels. Constructed in red brick in 1892-93, and intended to be a temporary structure until the parish could afford a larger stone building, the church has now served the community for more than a century!
